The Power of (Impossible) Positivity
It’s time to turn on the “weekend swagger.”
Do people still say the word “swagger” out loud?
The short answer is no. The longer answer features many sources for this term’s cultural collapse, most recently damaged by a middle-aged father in Los Angeles who has the promotional ego of Mt. Everest and the ROI of, well, his mediocre NBA son Lonzo Ball. It would be too easy (and obnoxious) to listen to the nonsensical, yet very real rants of patriarch LaVar Ball. Instead, watching the hilarious character actor Kenan Thompson of SNL do an impression of the aforementioned father is the perfect comedic escape.
If the Ball family has taught us anything, it’s best to check ourselves before we
shoplift in China wreck ourselves.
